A New Attraction | A Poem by Scott Thomas Outlar

Start at the same point every morning
and end at the same point each night

The same dreams propel the motion
through each action when I wake

Looking to fill the same empty spaces
while trying to find a higher truth

Seeking the perfect woman to help me
make the most of what time I have left

A poem for breakfast, a poem for lunch,
a poem for snacks, a poem for dinner

There is nothing new under the sun
yet I keep trying to disprove the theory
